What to pack when you overland Africa

It’s official, after spending two months in Cape Town we have purchased a Toyota Landcruiser and we’re currently driving across Africa! Don’t ask us about all of the logistics, a lot of it we are making up as we go along. It’s just what we do – don’t judge. We dabbled with the idea of taking public transport from Cape Town. Which, would make for some pretty incredible stories. However, we are traveling with a lot of expensive gear and would prefer to have the freedom of our own car especially in the most remote parts of Africa. We spent months planning … Read More

I want to Travel the World

We just crossed the border from South Africa over to Namibia. I am over the moon with excitement for what this trip through the Namibian desert will bring. However, it is also a milestone for me because I have now set foot in and traveled through 50 countries! I know that numbers don’t matter and many travelers choose not to “count countries”, but I have always found that setting a goal pushes me to actually do something. Long ago, I told myself I would see the world. Having traveled to 50 countries I have now been in more than 25% of the … Read More

What to wear on Safari

Safari clothing is a pretty serious affair in Africa we have come to find. Yes, it is a bit “old fashioned,” but some fashions never die. Unlike, certain parts of the world you won’t be laughed at for showing up in all khaki. In fact, there is even a South African brand called Khaki Fever that specializes in all khaki garments.  We’ve been in Africa going on three months now and have already been on more than a few “safaris,” but the best has yet to come. Over the course of the next six months, we’ll be on safari in Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, … Read More

The Kingdom of Swaziland

“We are going to Swaziland next,” I told my parents while describing our upcoming travel plans. “Where?” They asked. “Swaziland, you know, they still have a King there.” “Oh, that’s great, be safe!” Needless to say, they had absolutely no idea where we were heading – just that it was somewhere in Africa. It’s okay if you also haven’t heard of the Kingdom of Swaziland, because to tell you the truth up until a couple of years ago I hadn’t either. So Where Is Swaziland Located? The Kingdom of Swaziland is a landlocked country in Southern Africa between Mozambique and … Read More
